Walking with Father

I am trying to locate a poem that talks about a young child trying to keep up with the long strides of his father. . . something like " my daddy takes such great long steps, I hardly can keep up..." Thanks!

“Walk a little slower, Daddy/Mammy”,
Said a child so small,
“I’m following in your footsteps
And I don’t want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they’re hard to see;
So walk a little slower, Dad/Mam
For you are leading me.

Someday when I’m all grown up
You’re what I want to be.
Then I will have a little child
Who’ll want to follow me.

And I will want to lead just right
And know that I was true;
So walk a little slower, Dad/Mam
For I must follow you”.
